about

Five of the Eyes Portland, Maine

Blending elements of Funk, Rock, and Metal into one nimble, flying sonic behemoth, Five of the Eyes delivers their powerful sound with grace and precision. ... more

Track Name: Nacreous Cloud
Whispering incantations in the language of her mind,
Babblings from the infinite throne,
Escape routes impossible to find,
Left hopeless in their homes,
There's no more room for their memories of me,
Is the universe against my thoughts,
Why does it all seem so lost,
When we have the power to start again,
Will we just repeat and fall apart,
Comatose and lost through the ages,
Old dreams now clouded with memories,
From deep within, context is a phase,
Leave this place and let me sleep,
Escape roues impossible to find,
Left hopeless in their homes,
Comatose,
Comatose,
Is the universe against my thoughts,
Why does it all seem so lost,
When we have the power to start again,
Will we just repeat and fall apart,
These infinite eyes reflect,
At peace with what once was,
She finds little comfort, little hope,
Yet, there it is!
That shining piece of light that can almost be reached!
She wanders onwards towards the light,
Onwards,
Wanders,
Suddenly, I'm flooded with my own memories!
Track Name: Eta Carinae
Great junker in the sky
collects my indigenous, body
massive hordes
of old destroyed.

They take what they want.
They take our world to colonize.
How will you survive?

One in a billion!
That's all you are.
You're one in a billion!

From this distant nebula!

This is our last artifact to survive that massive hyper nova
and I know every night, I'll keep my head,
until that midnight hour of doub.

From this nebulous cloud!
Only darkness from the void!

Once you realize,
this may be our last day.
Is it too late for the human race?
Are we done for good?
Planet Challenger!
You sentence us all to death!
And what I can't express is my connection to
what ties the rest.

They take what they want.
They take our world to colonize.
How will you survive?

One in a billion!
One in a billion!

How will you survive?
You're one, oh yes, you're one!

Consider it accepted,
our right for stellar life!

With this gift I'll bring my own into the stars and fight.
With that last artifact, our only weapon to that being of superior might.
And I know every night I'll keep my head until, that midnight hour!
Planet Challenger! Let's see if you can stop this!
Track Name: Hell Hotel
I took the elevator baby, straight to the top,
I'm not coming back down anytime.
You can call me crazy, you can call me fucked,
but it can't save your life now.

Stabbed you in the chest, with love,
all over the table onto the rug.
I wrapped you up, so snug,
Pulled you to the backyard!

Walk up to the counter, talk on the attack
my verbal catacomb.
Money don't mean nothing,
but everything signed will be in blood.

Wait, don't forget your key.
Let me show you to your top floor suite,
cause as the night falls and the doors close,
some cat calls, "Welcome to the Hell Hotel!".

Stabbed you in the chest, with love,
all over the table onto the rug.
I wrapped you up, so snug,
Pulled you to the backyard!

Love!

Only one will survive the night,
if I'm feeling nice,
but that's a new definition of the word,
cover your ears and hide from the screams!
Blood stained curtain surprise, you better shut your eyes for this,
this is my playground of fears
and I'll dance upon the dead!

Just take me as I am, I'll cut you limb to limb.

Was I always this way?
Track Name: Burning Sands
Something to fight for, is something to fear,
I'll cross that bridge of power and make you disappear.
We will strive for the other side,
beneath a billion eyes
watching the seas rise from afar

I am sifting through, I've got more time in the cards then you.
In my hand, the burning sands remind me what I have to do.

What type of vengeance would it be,
to never say a word.
While three months on the burning sands
could leave us as we were.
Tell me, why does the sun burn
why does wind turn rock to dirt,
why do we destroy our prison while born upon the earth?

I am sifting through, I've got more time in the cards then you.
In my hand, the burning sands remind me what I have to do.

We check it out in the caves, everything seems fine,
I'm like a bird in the background, baby cha chi now die
when you call, you call my star and it sings with it's dangerous mind.
And you send wave after wave of the wind,
cause you still care, but the fear is god.
Is there someone there, in the dunes and the caves
in the burning sands with an encompassing hand.

And you flip the dial, and it starts again
with a quicksand howl, as it pulls me in
it's the encompassing hand, it's the encompassing hand!

Does anybody find me there,
out in the garden waiting to be,
in the celestial starlight,
in the celestial stars at night.

One night, I had a dream of you loving me.
Lately, I feel so lost.
Lost in this star....
without love!
